“His perfect love could not be overcome…”

This has been such an amazing/crazy/busy/exhausting/most rewarding weeks of my time working at Pantego Bible Church. Every year we gear up for Easter, but this year is different.

People are hungry.

Hungry for more of Christ and are yearning for something to fill the emptiness that the world cannot fill.

Easter Post

From: Two of a Kind

No matter where you are at in life, there’s nothing too large for Christ. As we take the next few days, remember the sacrifice He made.

We are singing this song on Easter Sunday. Not only is it true, but so powerful. These lyrics should be something we are proclaiming Forever.

March Giveaway!!

There were so many things that I was able to celebrate this month and in honor of all that goodness I wanted to do a little giveaway!!

“These are a few of my favorite things!”

I have been so tempted to go and buy all this stuff for myself!!

This make up bag is perfect for overnight stays and holding onto my all time favorite chapstick- Baby Lips. I have never had softer lips  than when I use this stuff. And who can go wrong with some pale pink Essie Nail polish to kick of the Spring!

For those ladies that LOVE LOVE LOVE the Blue Volcano Candle from Anthropologie, this is the exact same thing, but for a much more affordable price. The last two goodies are a box of adorable note cards and my favorite pack of Notebooks by Rifle Paper Co.!

Birthday

Photo: Pinterest

It has officially been 1 whole year since I launched Borrowed & Blue back on March 1, 2013! It is crazy to see how far it has come and how much I have learned about owning my own business. I can’t help but think that I could not have been here without friends and family pushing me to follow my dreams, so a huge Thank You to y’all and always being supportive of me!

I wanted to take a look back over the past year and celebrate those brides that trusted me to make their day as memorable as possible!

__________________________________________________________________

Janet & John Thai
This was my first wedding right before launching Borrowed & Blue! I’m sure most of you remember me mentioning Janet in “My Top Pick“. She is my number one girl for everything Hair & Makeup! Their wedding was stunning and I was so happy to be able to help design it!

Emerald + Gold Styled Shoot
This was my first shoot after launching and I was so happy to be a part of it! This shoot was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs back in July & we were so blessed for our work to be shown there!

This is also the first time we decided to bring in Jordan Laessig to do a behind the scenes video for us and it was phenomenal!

Kelsey & Drew
One of my oldest friends celebrated love this year and I was so pumped about gettin’ down on the dance floor with her and her new hubby!

Katie & Donnie
You know you watch the movie “My Best Friends Wedding” for years, but never anticipate how awesome it will feel when you actually post about your BEST FRIENDS WEDDING!! Holy Moly! This year my best friend married HER best friend! This was such a special day to share with her and it couldn’t have gone any better.

New Years Eve Styled Shoot
I LOVE LOVE LOVEDDD this Shoot!! It was so much fun throwing glitter and following our bride around trying to keep her dress from dragging on the dirty ground. We were also SO fortunate to have this shoot featured on Style Me Pretty .

And once again we had the ever so talented Jordan do a video for us and you should go check it out here.

In honor of our 1 year birthday celebration, we will be doing a Giveaway!! Here is a sneak peek at what’s in the giveaway, so be sure and share with your friends because we need 500 “likes” on facebook to kick it off!

I couldn’t give everything away, BUT know that it’s going to be awesome and I’m so happy to choose a lucky winner!! So, share the FB page and spread the word!

__________________________________________________________________

It’s so hard to wrap my head around one whole year. If you had told me that this is where I would be right now, I would have thought you were lying to me.

Fun Fact: I launched my website sitting in a train station in NYC. AH! I should’ve known how awesome it would be to start an adventure while on an adventure!

Cheers to another year.
